The New Spin
Gun bans out.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress’ latest crack at a new assault weapons ban would protect more than 2,200 specific firearms, including a semi-automatic rifle that is nearly identical to one of the guns used in the bloodiest shootout in FBI history.
Where would we be without caring people like Dianne Feinstein around to protect our guns?
Kristen Rand, the legislative director at the Washington-based Violence Policy Center, said the Ruger Mini-14 model that would be banned under Feinstein’s legislation is easier to hold while firing because it has a pistol grip, and it’s easier to hide because it has a collapsible stock.
Because someone using a Ruger Mini-14 to shoot up a playground would never think of sawing off the wooden stock or cutting down the barrel to make it easier to conceal.
Oh, wait…that would be illegal. Such an upstanding, law-abiding member of society wouldn’t want to run afoul of that particular law while committing mass murder.
